Kites to Kitty Hawk

In celebration of the centennial of flight, this exhibit chronicles the kites and their inventors as they move toward the goal of man powered flight. From early pioneers in Europe and the United States, we celebrate the final achievement of taking to the air with the Wright Brothers and their first flight at Kitty Hawk.
